That's what I was asked about last night's post. It's a good question. I have no idea.
I know we can be a dumber left.
We can be stupid and just vote for Barack because Mitt Romney is supposedly scary.
We can be stupid and spineless -- like we accuse members of Congress when they don't vote their beliefs.
We can get four more years of Barack because we asked for it.
We can be really stupid.
I hope we can be smart.
But I agree with the e-mailer that there's not a lot of reasons to hope that's possible.
We've silenced ourselves, gotten on board with spying and attacking whistleblowers and keeping Guantanamo open and so much more. We've lost our way. If we stay on this path, we may never get back to who we were. And that should be very, very scary to everyone.
So I think we can become a lot more stupid.
I'm not sure if we can be smarter.
But we need to figure out if what we say matters to us actually does or if it's just lip service?
I'm going to stand for what I believe in. If we had a smarter left, mine would be the main position. Instead, you're being urged to compromise and give up your values so that Barack can have a second term.
